Baby Shower?

So I am having another boy. I was told it would be wrong to have another baby shower. Is that weird? I thought it was a welcome kind of thing for baby mothers passing down knowledge and loving the fat lady. just kinda confused that it would be a bad thing. any advice or comments? thanks just confused

  • I believe that each child deserves their own baby shower. I mean whether you already have a child or two even of the same sex. I think it is sort oflike a Birthday party for that child prior to even being born. I mean there is always a spot for the baby shower in a baby book right? What are you going to just fill it out for your first born and then tell the other kid eh, sorry but you weren't first! Lol yeah ok. So no I don't think it is wrong to have another baby shower girl you and that baby deserve it and screw anyone who tells you it's wrong!!

  • Usually you don't have a shower for the second kid of the same sex unless your family is all okay with it then who cares... I know the only reason I had one this time is b/c it's a girl, I already had a boy and we didn't get big things nor did I expect too. i think it can be okay as long as you don't expect big gifts and just stick to the basics. It just depends on your family and how they feel

  • I don't think there is anything wrong with it. Some people might think it's in bad taste, maybe some of your older relatives, but who cares? I wouldn't register for much. Probably just ask everyone to bring the necessities like diapers, skin care, etc. and then just have a good time.
